  • Description

    UNFANCIED TAIWAN SHOOK THE GOLFING WORLD TODAY (THURSDAY) WHEN THEY JUMPED INTO A FIRST ROUND LEAD IN THE WORLD CUP TOURNAMENT ON THE OLGIATA COURSE NEAR ROME. LU LIANG-HUAN WENT ROUND THE PAR 72 COURSE IN 69 WHILE HIS PARTNER HSIEH YUNG-YO RETURNED A 70 FOR A TEAM TOTAL OF 139.

    ENGLAND WERE ONE STROKE BEHIND TAIWAN IN SECOND PLACE WITH ITALY THIRD ON 141. CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES, THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS, SHARED FOURTH PLACE OF 142.

    CANADIAN AL BALDING LED THE INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION WITH A FOUR-UNDER-PAR 68, ONE STROKE AHEAD OF LU LIANG-HUAN AND AMERICAN OPEN CHAMPION LEE TREVINO.

    43 COUNTRIES, EACH REPRESENTED BY A TEAM OF TWO, ARE COMPETING FOR THE WORLD CUP--FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE CANADA CUP--DURING THE FOUR DAY TOURNAMENT.

    THE UNITED STATES HAS DOMINATED THE COMPETITION FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS, WITH ONLY SOUTH AFRICA'S VICTORY IN MADRID IN 1965 BREAKING THEIR WINNING STREAK. SOUTH AFRICA, IN THE SHAPE OF GARY PLAYER AND COBIE LEGRANGE, AGAIN APPEAR TO BE THE AMERICANS' MAIN CHALLENGERS.

    THE AMERICAN TEAM IS AS STRONG AS EVER WITH JULIUS BOROS, THE 48 YEAR OLD UNITED STATES P.G.A. (PROFESSIONAL GOLF ASSOCIATION) CHAMPION, PLAYING WITH LEE TREVINO. BOROS PLAYED IN THE WORLD CUP WHEN IT WAS FIRST PLAYED IN 1953.
